Day 7 Update – Jack Attacks! – A 260 Km Ride

by admin on September 19, 2008

We started this day 30 kms out of Balladonia (which is where we planned to be) and aimed to get to Caiguna, 210 kms away.

As Mel mentioned, we didn’t want to get further behind as it might be difficult to make us so much lost ground.

Jack still had his cold and was exhuasted from the previous day, but away we went at 7 am.

After a great effort from Jack we managed to cover a massive 260 kms for the day – putting us 50 kms ahead of schedule.

Today included Australia’s longest straight – at 146.6 km long, it’s a beauty!

I simply don’t know how a 15 yo guy can do a ride like that after an exhuasting 185 kms the day before (not to mention the punishing first 5 days!
